Re: “A Novel Sweet, the Butter Cake, Arrives at Farmers' Market

Christina, just read your Wiki link. Glad you posted it. I had heard that Dierbergs had invented it but, it supposedly came from one of the grandkids. But, although Dierbergs started with the great grandfather having a general store and since the 1800's it could be true. I would say as they noted. Dierbergs might very well have perfected the cake without the butter and cream cheese as they noted ... the story sounds right in the wiki.

My friend's husband owns a prominent bakery here on the Illinois side of the river and they sell Both Chess and Gooey Butter Cakes. So ...

Yes, they may have the same ingredients, but, put together differently. The Chess Cake says to "bake until done in the center". Not so in the Gooey Butter Cake.

It's sort of like my "Patio cookies" I made for my niece and nephew when I was starting to cook. I threw all the ingredients in a bowl and mixed them up. They tasted alright ... but, they crumbled to touch. They got the name of Patio Cookies because ... my sister made the kids eat the cookies out on the patio! LOL!

The thing about Julie's cake is ... that it is hers. Put together with her care! I can't wait to try one Julie! Send me an order form!

Go to cake Christina ... It has some good info on the St. Louis conection.

Thank you!
